It is said that one of the most important social aspects of the internet is that it levels the playing field for people and provides new access for users with ideas. This program looks at several examples of sites that provide a platform for a variety of diverse interests. Guest DaMeila Drayton demonstrates Teenage Empowerment and introduces several teen chat sites that focus on topics of interest especially to teenagers. Muki Izora demonstrates oceanbank.com and the Plugged In program aimed at low income families living in urban communities. Lisa Wahl shows us ataccess.org, el.net, and planemath.com, sites that offer accessibility for people with disabilities. Josue Guillen guides us through Labour Net, GreenNet, and PeaceNet, sites which help marginalized communities get their voices heard.
